I met with another deck guy yesterday morning. Seemed pretty good, but I still liked the one from Tuesday night best. We'll see what I get for quotes from them.
Landscapers got the irrigation burried in the backyard yesterday and finished the retaining wall. The backyard is now mostly level. They've got a bit more digging out to do where the concrete is going to be poured, so they'll have some extra dirt. But I think they might need to bring in a bit of fill.
I spent a lot of the day looking into hot tubs and planning the final parts of the concrete design. Used SketchUp and started working on a 3D model.
I think I'm going to go with a Pacific Marquis hot tub. Possibly the Epic.
Considering sevearl Dimension One models as well, including the Diplomat.
Chris suggests going with Arctic, but I don't know if it is a good brand or not. The Frontier Legend SE does look pretty cool.
